    I saw a Black Skimmer for the first time day. They aren't very common around here so it was a nice surprise.

    Never have seen this bird, even in photos. An odd appearance to the bill, but it looks like it would be great for skimming along the water's surface!

    I've not heard of this one either but you sure did a beautiful job of capturing it. Excellent shots!
